    • Applications are now open for the WA Training Awards 2019
    • New categories introduced for Large Employer of the Year and Medium Employer of the Year
    • Winners of individual categories will receive $3,000 study grant

    Applications for the WA Training Awards 2019 are now open. This is an opportunity for the Western Australian training sector to showcase excellence, reward best practice and put our State's best VET achievers in the spotlight.


    The awards recognise and reward the achievements of apprentices, trainees and vocational students; and the contribution of trainers, training organisations and employers.


    This year will see the introduction of separate categories for Large Employer of the Year and Medium Employer of the Year. This will help to better recognise the contribution, employers of all sizes make to the training sector.


    Award winners will be announced at a presentation ceremony in September with winners of individual categories receiving $3,000 to further their training or kickstart their careers.


    Winners may also be eligible to compete against the nation's best at the Australian Training Awards later in the year.


    In 2018, the State recorded its best ever results at the national awards with six of WA's nominees taking out national titles.

    Applications close on May 3, 2019.
